What is a Chocolate Truffle?

Chocolate Truffles are a type of chocolate confection made with a ganache (cream and melted chocolate) center and coated with whatever you choose. The sky is the limit! I love that every one of these could be different if that’s what you chose.

It’s also great that you can add in flavor extracts to make these just about any flavor. I made this batch with orange liqueur but next time I plan to use strawberry extract. Chocolate Covered Strawberry Truffles, anyone?

How long can you keep Chocolate Truffles?

These should stay good on your counter in an airtight container for 3-5 days or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. I like them best served at room temp, but you can keep them cool until about an hour before you’re ready to serve and then take them out of the refrigerator. I cannot wait for you to try these!

I've been looking for something similar in light gray for what seems like years. really its probably just months. love it!

Hi Becky, LOVE your website! I have just one question about the truffle recipe. Instruction #6 says "Add the liqueur (if using), coffee, and vanilla." But there is no coffee listed in in the ingredients. ?? Is that an option for the liqueur, like the other suggestions you list? Thank you.
    Becky Hardin
    I'm SO sorry, that was a typo. I've fixed the recipe. Thanks for your kind words and for letting me know!
